Gottawanna Program

The Gottawanna program addresses specific issues for adults who are seeking help for their alcohol or drug use, gambling or other addictive behaviours.

Common problems may include:

  • Anger
  • Violence
  • Stress
  • Family and personal relationship breakdowns
  • Drink driving
  • Illicit substance possession
  • Domestic violence
  • Health issues

The program offers a supportive, non-judgemental environment where you can begin to understand when, why and how you developed dependent behaviours including the use of alcohol and other drugs.

The program is designed to help you recognise and accept your responsibilities in life and explore the range of choices you have, with a greater awareness and increased skills to manage your life.

All Holyoake programs are based on a harm minimisation model.
